The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) brought in $4.9 million in May, the largest total they've ever raised during that month in a nonelection year.
The committee has totaled $22.2 million raised for the 2014 cycle, and has $10 million cash on hand for May.
The DSCC wouldn't say how much it had spent in the last month — or how much debt it was carrying. As of the end of April, the organization had $8.6 million in the bank and $13.8 million in debt.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has yet to announce its May fundraising numbers.

The DSCC has been outpacing the NRSC in fundraising in recent months, though the NRSC narrowly outraised the DSCC in April. At that point, the NRSC had $7 million in the bank and $9.5 million in debt.
